Dan Fister for KY State Representative

Platform

1.    Economic Development and Job Creation.  The 56th District is in need of economic development and job creation throughout the entire District.  Our local businesses are suffering because our residents are leaving the district for work, and we don’t have jobs to keep our children in the community if they want to stay. Creating a diverse mix of jobs that pay a better than average wage will benefit our residents and provide an increase in much-needed local customers for our existing businesses. Diversification and broadening the base of our local economy will make us less vulnerable to economic swings and it will allow us to grow our tax base rather than growing our tax rates.  

2.    Listen to YOU.  Career politicians at all levels of government have always done a great job of telling me what issues are affecting me and what will make my life better. The problem is they are usually wrong. They don’t understand the problems being discussed at our kitchen tables and don’t seem to care. I want to know what is affecting YOU.

 
3.    Bring some “common sense” to State Government.   Just like at home, government cannot continue to borrow money to pay its bills. Cutting waste and paying our debts is being fiscally responsible to the tax payers of Kentucky.  We simply cannot maintain the out-of-control mismanagement of our state finances and expect our children to have a future. Frankfort must live within its means.

Dan Fister for KY State Representative

I went to Together Frankfort‘s candidate forum for the Frankfort/Franklin Co. School Board Candidates last night at Kentucky State University. While I went to listen to the candidates and their views, I got a special treat in meeting Colmon Elridge III. Mr. Elridge is the Director of Government Affairs for the Kentucky Education Association (KEA) and he spoke for about an hour on the “dramatic changes” that have occurred in education. Very interesting. #fister56 ... See MoreSee Less

I want to thank Josh Bergeron with the State Journal for the interview yesterday. It may be very late in the race to start talking about the Republican Candidate, but he is the first person from any of the three papers in my District (State Journal, Woodford Sun, Herald Leader) to agree to talk to me. I can’t wait to see how it turns out. #fister56 ... See MoreSee Less

I attended a great event today at the Life Adventure Center in Versailles as they celebrated Congressman Andy Barr’s help in receiving a grant to fund their work with veterans. This is just one of many organizations that have benefited from Congressman Barr’s help and just another way he is serving the people of Central Kentucky. #fister56 ... See MoreSee Less
